  • November Final POWER date?

    Has anyone gotten a letter or heard when the final POWER will be for the November academy? I was hoping to get into the October class, but I don't think my background was finished in time. I haven't heard anything in over a month. Just trying to see if anyone has more info about the upcoming class...

    I'm in the same boat as you and wondering the same thing.

      If there is a Nov class, the Power test would be either the first or second weekend in Nov, they normally will give you 14-10 days notice, so if there is a Nov class, you should get something next week. Start day would be the last week of the month, so maybe the Monday after Thanksgiving.

        No one's gotten anything yet? I figured they would be here by now.

            I called personnel today and they forwarded me to someone in investigations who told me that there isn't going to be a Nov. academy. Probably won't be one until next year.

              Are they still going to process people through in November and December even though there isn't going to be an academy?

                Man that sucks. My current job is killing me slowly! Two years of excitement hoping I would get to start mixed with extreme disappointment when I found out I wouldn't get to.

                  Yeah, that's what I heard from two current CPD officers. They told me that after processing we should expect to be in a Jan or Feb class.

                    Will we be notified that we passed the background before January?

                      The first academy of 07 started in April...I know u all want to start right now, but trust me, u dont want to start in Dec-Jan-Feb...Due to the weather, there is only so much u can do outside, parking is very limited due to the fact that the entire area surronding the academy is no parking if there is 2 inches of snow...the POWER test is outside, u dont want to take your 1st POWER test in Jan when it is 10 degrees...I know its hard to do, but just stay patient.

                        Hey Grunt,

                        I think a lot us have important things riding on this job, and I don't think parking and little bit of snow is going to stop us. I think a lot of us who are patiently waiting would run in blizzard if that's what it takes. As for the parking, I park 5 blocks away from my house every day, but thats what you get when you live in chicago. Of course, if we have to wait until next year so be it.

                        Hope to see you soon! Wear some long underwear for your next power!

                          I took the power test yesterday at the academy, and it was cold yesterday so taking the test in the winter is not going to be any fun! Word is the next academy class wont be til Dec! Hope thats true so my group can be off the heat!

                            You got that right zoomie!

                            It definitely won't be like runnin the PFT during BMT at Lackland. But then again everything is different in the nation of Texas.

                            When you want something that bad you suck it up and deal with the cold for the 8-13 minutes it takes you to run a mile and a half. Train like you fight! You think that perp is gonna slow down just because it's 20 degrees outside?

                            Spooky
